My brother and sister-in-law and two kids live in Montana. Last week the fire came close to their home and they had to leave, then were allowed to return and then the wind changed and brought the fire even closer to their home. Fire is one of the scariest disasters in my opinion. It ravages acres and homes and lives. It is difficult to control. I know my brother and sister-in-law are very grateful to the hard working fire fighters who have been working to control the fire in their area.
Most of the fire houses in this part of the state where I live are volunteer fire fighters. They get a call and they drop everything and hurry to the fire house and get suited and into the truck. They are trained and hard working and brave.
The fire is not out in Montana, and there is a huge fire in California that is of great concern to all the people who live in that part of the state. After the fire in Arizona took the lives of so many fire fighters recently, I have been reading about the different fires with interest and anxiety. The fact that one of the fires affected my family did make me more involved but the fires are of great concern to us all. Material things can be replaced; fellow human beings cannot. Be safe everyone, as safe as possible.
